A burnt-out camper van belonging to the lifelong friends – Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18 – was discovered on Friday along the highway in northern British Columbia.
Police say Mr McLeod and Mr Schmegelsky have since been spotted driving out of the province and are now suspects.
They were previously described by police as missing, with the implication that they may also be victims of the killer.
A third unidentified body was found near the young men’s burnt out van.
In a news release on Tuesday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) wrote: “Given these latest developments, Kam and Bryer are no longer considered missing. The RCMP are considering Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky as suspects in the Dease Lake suspicious death investigation and the double homicide of Lucas Fowler and Chynna Deese.”
Who was murdered?
Australian Lucas Fowler, 23, and American Chynna Deese, 24 were on a two-week-long road trip across Canada, where Lucas Fowler had been working.
Their 1986 blue Chevrolet minivan was found near their bodies, and eyewitnesses told media they had earlier seen the pair on the side of the road when their van had broken down.
What do we know about the suspects?
Mr McLeod and Mr Schmegelsky had been on their way to Yukon territory for work last week and have not been in contact with their families since.
Police say they were spotted driving a grey 2011 Toyota Rav 4 through northern Saskatchewan.
They do not know their destination and have warned the public they are “considered dangerous” and should not be approached.
And the third body?
